Graduation Rates
The Board of Regents’ “systemic” Graduation Rate Report is designed to track a first-time, full-time cohort of students through the first six years of Louisiana public postsecondary education. This calculated graduation rate includes graduates from both the “same” or starting institution and any “other” public postsecondary institution in Louisiana. For each cohort, three separate graduation rates are calculated: a) “associate or below in 150% of normal time” for students awarded an associate degree, diploma, or certificate within 3 years; b) “baccalaureate in 150% of normal time” for students awarded a baccalaureate degree within 6 years; c) “first award from [a] or [b] in 150% of time”.

Time to Degree
Time to Degree for First Postsecondary Award is designed to provide an alternative analysis of Louisiana’s public postsecondary progression data. The report calculates average time-to-degree in calendar years for baccalaureate, associate and certificate awards in the academic reporting year. The metrics are presented by starting status [FTF or transfer] and attendance status [full/part time] of the graduating cohort when they first enrolled in Louisiana public postsecondary education.
